Gay USA Kate Clinton
The US was set to take up the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act stripped of gender identity protections this week, though Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) is to introduce a floor amendment covering people of transgender experience. We'll be discussing that, the latest from Larry Craig, and Rudy Giuliani's continued retreat on gay rights. Ann reviews a new AIDS-themed play from Israel and Andy a new musical about gay soldiers in World War II.
Producer Gay USA
Our guest this week for our last twenty minutes is the dean of gay comedians, Kate Clinton, currently on tour and making us laugh harder than ever. Kate will give us her unique takes on those other Clintons, the presidential race, the Larry Craig scandal, her longtime opposition to the war on Iraq, Bush and Cheney, and her audiences around the country.
Kate Clinton's "Climate Change" tour is in Lexington, KY at the Singletary Center on October 27, in New York on November 1 at the Gotham Comedy Club, and in Alexandria, VA at the Birchmere on November 16. For more information about Kate and her tour, go to www.KateClinton.com
